Demi Lovato, ‘Thanks For Your Support!’

kkkkkk


Demi Lovato AOL interview. Do you attribute any of the issues that sent you into treatment to early pressures of child stardom and growing up in the spotlight? No. My issues stem from other things that happened in my childhood. They are issues that every girl deals with, whether they’re in the spotlight or not.

Cutting has become so common with so many girls and in almost every family people have tried it or experimented with it & there is addiction all over the place. It doesn’t necessarily come from being a quote unquote child star. So, you don’t feel any increased pressure, having just recently been released from treatment and being thrust back into the public eye? You’re still very young.

I don’t really consider myself young, because I’ve lived so much life and have been through a lot. But for the most part, it doesn’t make it any easier being in front of the cameras while I’m trying to be in recovery from an eating disorder. But this is what I love doing and nothing is going to stop me from doing what I love and inspiring people to better themselves.

Was there a moment you considers stepping out of the spotlight all together? Yeah, I definitely had to reevaluate my life in every way possible and I had to consider not going back to acting and music as an option. Ultimately, at the end of the day, my health and my state of mind is more important than any career. But I thought, “Music is something that keeps me healthy and that has saved my life at one point, and I love it and I’m not going to give it up.

I can stay healthy & I can do it at the same time. There are so many other artists who have done it. Like Robert Downey Jr., he’s obviously dealt with a lot and he’s been able to maintain his sobriety and his career at the same time. I kind of look at him as an inspiration. And he’s not the only one,

So I’ve seen that it is possible. I took my break away from it and it felt great, but now I’m excited & I’m ready to get back into it. Why have you decided to speak so openly about your issues? I know that if I can use my voice to speak to one person, or one family, then I’ve done my part. I feel like it’s no coincidence that God put me through all of this and has also given me the voice that I have.

This is an ongoing process and the hardest part about these diseases is that they’re things that I’m going to have to face every day for the rest of my life. I’m going to mess up and I’m not going to be perfect, but as long as I try everyday to get better and better myself, then I’m one step ahead of where I was before.

Are you dating Ryan Phillippe? Wow, it’s really funny. I think that when you’re in Hollywood, people link you up to the most random people. I don’t even know where that came from. I think it’s really funny and some rumors are just so crazy. I guess that kind of happens when people want to tear you down. But no, it’s not true.

What’s the next single? We don’t have it chosen yet, because we’re still working on so many songs. But, it’s going to be just a matter of weeks before we decide. We’re all really excited about it and I’m hoping it will be something much lighter, more dance-y. I’m not the kind of Adele artist where I want to sing all ballads and all emotional songs all the time. I still want to have fun & I like to sing what I like to listen to. What are you listening to right now? A lot of Nicki Minaj!

    um to the anon that didn’t see me last comment*
    13 going on 30 is about a girl who goes from the age 13 to 30 (derr hurr) but she still has the mind of a 13 year old girl. It’s funny how she talks and interacts with other people. Try it out if you have the chance.
